Step 1: Go to Twitter.com or download the app and sign up for an account. The “Full name” that you provide will be your display name, but unlike Facebook, you can change your display name to whatever you want as many times as you want, so it’s really easy to stay anonymous if you so choose.
Recognizing that we need both types of speech, Merleau-Ponty didn’t champion one over another: Sometimes all you want to know is simply whether your friend felt “sad:(” or “shocked!” after watching the *Games of Thrones “Red Wedding” episode (*spoken speech). And on other occasions you want thoughtful details – “what just happened? what does it mean?” – of their reaction to the Lost or Sopranos finale (authentic speech).
In a demo of the web version, I was impressed with the variety and dynamics of the layouts the site surfaced. The website, like its mobile apps, is modular in presentation, segmenting stories and images into squares and rectangles, print-style. Unlike its mobile counterparts though, Flipboard ditched its trademark page flipping for scrolling. As you scroll, you may come across large, browser-width images, smaller, high-density images accompanied by story titles and text, and highlights of other topics or personal magazine-makers you may find interesting (based on your current browsing habits). It built-in a great deal of variety into the layout to help develop magazine-style pacing. For larger photographs, Flipboard uses a lot of image processing on the back end, examining edges and figuring out where it’s best to put editorial content on an image, for example, or what color background best complements a photo set.
Or, what happens when an entire government can track our moods, as they are already doing in India? (The implications are even more nefarious when you couple that with the country’s massive ID program).
“The Library of Congress is not a national library and it’s not at all clear that their mission is or should be to be the library for everybody,” O’Donnell said.
A Southwest Airline flight was evacuated earlier this week after a replacement model Note 7 smartphone began smoking inside the plane, according to the family who owns the phone.
Per New York’s multiple dwelling law, an apartment in a building with three or more units cannot be rented out for under 30 days unless there’s a permanent occupant present. A host who lists multiple apartments can’t reside in all of them, and so is almost certainly violating the law. The same goes for short-term listings of entire apartments: unless it’s in one of the comparatively rare small buildings in New York, it’s illegal. Yet as others trawling through Airbnb’s data dump quickly observed, more than half the listings in the trove were for entire apartments—and that didn’t even include those vanished thousand-plus listings that Cox and Slee had discovered.
While a number of U.S. firms say they are playing ball to preserve their entree to Russia’s huge tech market, at least one U.S. firm, Symantec, told Reuters it has stopped cooperating with the source code reviews over security concerns. That halt has not been previously reported.
Princeton Video Image, the company that brought us the famous first-down line in football telecasts, has devised a technique for superimposing product placements on syndicated TV shows. Thus, the cast of TV’s Friends could drink Aquafina water or Starbucks coffee.
You will not be able to escape Olympic fever for about two weeks in August, so why not join in on the fun? Grab a cold one, sit down on your couch, maybe even strap on a VR headset, and cheer on your home country.
These glaringly incomplete descriptions of humor offended McGraw’s need for order. His duty was clear. “A single theory provides a set of guiding principals that make the world a more organized place,” he says.
The discussion then turned to another 15-year-old suspect who used the online moniker Tehwongz, and who was apparently arrested in the U.K. before Christmas for DDoSing his school and allegedly defacing the website of a Manchester-based credit union. The U.K. agent explained that the hacker wrote a statement revealing how he became a hacker and allegedly asserting that he was responsible for the hack of the gaming site Steam, which suffered a breach last year.
On the morning of the meeting, Nick arrived to find the front door of their coworking space smashed. Earlier arrivals had just crunched their way over the drifts of glass, so it was left to Nick to take up a broom and sweep the shards into a glittering pile.
And Corriher raised three points that I thought it would be fun to explore as a kitchen chemist:
The IAB says the categories were established by the IAB Tech Lab, a partner organization, and developed in consultation with academics, ad measurement companies, and IAB members. In a blog post from November 2017, the lab said its goal in creating the current set of categories was to help content creators facilitate more “relevant, brand safe, and effective advertising,” in part to help with “audience analysis and segmentation.”
“Until recently a sentence passed in a misdemeanor case like mine would have been dropped after five years, but now the law has been tailored to prolong the validity of any sentence to up to 30 years,” Shohdy said. “This news made me laugh,” he joked bitterly, “because in 2032, Naguib Surur’s centenary will be celebrated, and I have no doubt that a monument will be inaugurated in Cairo.”
